x64 support?

Any plans to provide a native 64-bit version of SCRT and SFX?

No plans at this time, but I expect we'll soon be moving to a development environment that would support this.

What benefits would you expect to see from a native 64-bit version?

Little, I'd imagine. It was more out of curiosity. I suppose it'd be more critical to me if there were any shell integration.

I would be more interested in an OSX version

As Intel/AMD x64 chips become more common, and Windows x64 Desktop is used more, then I can see a native version or one with x64 extensions, but I cant think of any immediate benefit until the desktop is pure 64-bit (so you dont need to emulate).

In the near future I doubt many have a need for a multi terabyte screen dump from memory

Chad,

There was a poll about a year back about what platforms would we like to see
VanDyke's products on. I as well, would love to see both SecureCRT and AbsoluteFTP running under Apple's OS X operating system.
